Hi Folks,

As we approach the summer months, I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather and sunshine.

When I’m not legislating, I love to spend my free time playing the guitar and writing music. Not only am I able to collaborate with my band, Ben Gardener’s Boat, but I’ve recently been working on solo music! In fact, I just released a brand new, original song called, “Temptation Was There”. If you’re interested in giving it a listen, you can stream it on Spotify or Apple Music. I’ll also be back in the studio to work on some more music in the next few months.

This year is also a milestone for Ben Gardner’s Boat; it’s our 25th year anniversary! I’ve been lucky enough to spend 2 1/2 decades writing and enjoying music with some of my best friends. In honor of this accomplishment and my 10th anniversary in the legislature, we’re planning a special event to commemorate both anniversaries. And there will likely be some live music involved. Keep an eye out for more details about the event.

It’s been a treat serving Franklin and Medway for the last 10 years and keeping up with the band at the same time! Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to continuing our work together.
